This is the main project of the Cerritos Community College Introduction to Woodworking class I used Walnut for most of it and Maple for the bottom. I tried a couple of variations on the recommended plan, giving it feet and a swiveling handle thanks to wedged Birch dowels. I need to sand and assemble the tray, which also uses Walnut and Maple, fix the handle which was a bit too loose, and put plugs to cover the screws.

Hey friends! Just wanted to update everyone and let you guys know that I will be visiting my daughter soon so that I can upload my new cabinet made from Zebrawood.

I am the proud owner of a new Sawstop Professional Cabinet Saw (PCS). I picked it up just a couple of days ago from Brentwood Machinery in NH and brought it into the shop. It comes with the rails, T-glide fence and extension table. I went with the 36” rails as I have a smaller shop and I use a festool TS55 to break down larger sheet goods. I also opted for the mobile base to move it around when/if I need to. I just started opening the packaging today and was not disappointed ...
Well my desk is finally finished. Its been finished for a a few months now but i just got around to taking the pictures. Hope you guys like it!!
Wow….1000 days. I know I haven’t made many posts lately….life gets in the way sometimes. I desperately need more shop time. All I have manged to do lately is make it an unholy mess. I wish to thank those of you out there have taken the time to read my posts, send personal messages or just words of encouragement over the past 1000 days. I am truly humbled. I would have never imagined that this site would have done so well, much less that we would be associated with such...
OK, I got my mini lathe, tools and a bunch of pen turning supplies. Started turning this last weekend to pump out some pens for the people at the office. I laid out my selection of wood and acrylic blanks on my desk and everyone chose their favorite. Of course, no one in the office knows what I am doing with them. Lets see how it goes since I am using this round to start the learning curve.
Well, we made it through all three days of the Woodworking Show and had a great time. I think one of us even left without lightening his wallet at all so we are going to get him to a doctor quick. We did forget to take pictures except for the first day so if you want to see pictures of the booth set-up or the show you will have to look here. We had a good turnout of LumberJocks there including: Myself, Keith Shipp, blackcherry, Tim Pursell, RobertHorton, russv, Jim Ceriale, Patrick, and...

So I was making good progress through my holiday gifts this weekend when my router refused to start. I checked everything over and didn’t see anything obvious. It was plugged in, breaker hadn’t tripped, tried a different outlet etc….The casing wasn’t hot and no smell of burnt motor (You know that smell) I have a Freud FT1700 about a year old. I had been using it 5 minutes beforehand and it had turned off in its normal manner and then it failed to turn on. No noises ...
